Wedding Favor Traditions

The tradition of giving wedding favors dates back thousands of years ago. The earliest gifts noted were called bonbonnieres, small trinket boxes made of exquisite stones or porcelain. Often these boxes contained sugar cubes because in those times sugar was scare and very expensive. Almonds came next, coated with sugar. Traditionally five Jordan almonds are given, the number stemming from a superstition that the five symbolize fertility, longevity, wealth, health and happiness.

 At Nature Favors We hope to make at least this little piece of your wedding day (the favors) as beautiful as we can, yet simple for you to achieve. We love finding new ways to expand on this thousand year old tradition and simply adore seeing photos from our clients’ weddings where they used our favors in a modern and beautiful way. Below is a collage of some beautiful photos sent to us from Chelsea and Ryan. Their special day was nature themed with our heart shaped bird seed favors given as a gift from the “Love Birds”.
